‘Catching Cold: Vol 1 – Breakthrough: Hearts must first break to strengthen (A precovid-19 novel)’ released

CHANDLER, Ariz., Feb. 25, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lem Moyé wanted to give the lay reader the chance to understand viruses and the immune system, while also showing them that scientists are not automatons but people with a full panoply of problems. It is for this reason he has written “Catching Cold: Vol 1 – Breakthrough: Hearts must first break to strengthen (A precovid-19 novel)” (published by Trafford Publishing).

Doctor Jon DeLeon, an inspired scientist plagued by emotional addictions, believes that he can cure the common cold. His motley group of eccentric and intense scientists under the name CiliCold stumble, fight and work together to test Jon’s hypothesis. These efforts lead to repeated failure, and their support team becomes disillusioned by the repeated difficulties.

Attorneys Jasper Giles and Cassie Rhodes, ruthless defenders of the SSS Pharmaceutical Company, learn of Dr. DeLeon’s ideas through the brutal deposition of CiliCold’s ex-accountant. Intrigued by the promise of Jon’s work, they infiltrate the company to learn that Jon’s imminent emotional collapse and financial ruin blind him to the crippling assault the lawyers are prepared to unleash. Only the final staggering observation of Jon and his team, together with the dogged resistance of another takeover target of SSS, can possibly preserve the finding of overwhelming scientific significance for which no one is prepared.

“This novel focuses on behavioral disorders, emotional interactions between scientists and immunology. It demonstrates that scientists driven by intellect but riven by emotions are the most interesting of people. The public will also realize the impact of viruses on their daily lives and the need for vaccines and treatment,” Moyé says. When asked what he wants readers to take away from the book, Moyé answers, “That immunology is understandable but that the emotional problems of scientists are worthy of attention.” For more details about the book, please visit
